No, just wifi, but you could add extra functionality with external chips

They can drastically reduce power by your porgram triggering deep-sleeps between interactions, an example of this is the battery powered hockey lights made for budweiser which lights up when your team scores a goal. Between games its asleep.

On their platform customers code has always run in a vm on the device to stop customers "bricking" them

Probably that cost would come down as we go up with volumes. Since it is mentioned as product of consumer electronics the Key is always to bring down price with mass production.

Highly interesting product, no doubt.

 other niche they're missing is very low power. For that niche  the LORA protocol by semtech fit well. One question thought :how would they integrate their scripting language and virtual machine in a low power system ?

The second set of questions: The embedded industry is highly driven by  price, especially in consumer products. This module seems expensiveSo how did they convinced they're customers ?  what volumes per product are they shipping? is it used only for the first version of the products?

Bluetooth Smart, ANT, or some other ultra-low-power proprietary technology?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
